Now that I’m officially back on American soil, I think it calls for a celebration (and in blog land, a celebration means a giveaway)! But first I want to gab a little bit about how cool these maps are.
I first saw Map My State floating around Pinterest a couple years ago when I lived in Georgia. I was feeling nostalgic for my home state and promptly bought a map for New Mexico. I loved that they let me customize my print by swapping out a couple town names for the ones I wanted, plus their customer service was fantastic and prompt. I had plans to create a “map wall” in our house, but then we got orders to move to Italy, so hanging things up got put on the back burner. I left the print unframed and it got packed with the rest of our goods.
Fast forward to a few months ago. I was going through stuff in my office and stumbled upon the New Mexico print. I forgot how much I loved it, but realized it looked a little lonely and needed some company. With the nomadic lifestyle we live, I decided to see if they offered maps for countries as well as states. I was in luck!
I ordered a print of Georgia and Italy and personalized them with the towns we lived in. I toyed between getting them in different colors, but decided to go with a classic black and white for all three. They shipped out extremely fast* and before I knew it, I had three map prints, all eager to be framed. I got them framed and ready to go, but then I ran into the problem of hanging them up—just not worth it in our Italian home. I have great plans to create a “map wall” once we get to our Georgia home in a few months and I’m excited to have these grace our walls.
I mentioned getting my maps personalized, but here are a few more fab options you can do at Map My State:
- Highlight a city in color for a little more pizazz
- Include a city that isn’t already listed
- Add personalized text below the map
- Choose from an array of colors (not just in black and white!)
- Pick a city, state, country and even Canadian provinces!
- Not limited to just prints; they do mugs, too!
Now for the fun part! Map My State is offering one of my readers a free 8×10 print of their choice (enter below) AND they’re offering a 20% discount off any of their products if you use the coupon code “JLW” (offer good through Monday, August 5).
Disclaimer: All opinions, thoughts, and comments are completely my own. Map My State did not compensate me to write this review; I bought all of my maps with my own dough. I simply like the company and told them how cool they are, and they offered to give y’all something. Everybody wins!
